T-Mobile Restructuring Effort Will Lead to Job Losses
T-Mobile USA CEO Philip Humm today announced a forthcoming internal reorganization that will result in some job losses. In a letter sent to T-Mobile employees, Humm explained that the company has had to make some difficult choices in order to move forward with its new strategy. Humm didn't say how many employees would be affected by the changes, but noted that the changes are coming in the next week and employees will be notified personally. "It is important to emphasize these impacts to employees result from business decisions. We have tremendous employees here at T-Mobile and we truly wish we could retain all our talent, but our business realities require hard choices," said Humm. He noted that the changes will let the company save money, speed up its LTE network deployment, and reposition the brand in the U.S. market. T-Mobile has already announced a round of call center closures this year that will affect about 1,000 employees.

Good thing the DOJ stopped that AT&T merger from happening. Think of all the jobs that would have been lost... oh wait...
dont you thing it's better if the merger happen ? 😕
Phillip Humm is a serpent, but this isn't as bad as it sounds
But, this article is very misleading. Frontline employees, engineering techs, and the people in the remaining call centers aren't being affected. The cuts are only coming in upper management, and to be honest, T-Mobile has entirely too many middle and upper managers that as far as I can tell don't really do a whole lot.
